Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) Testing.

What is LEV Testing:

Local exhaust ventilation (LEV) checks, help control the release of hazardous airborne substances from a process into the workplace environment.

Why carry out LEV testing:

The aim of LEV checking is to control the emission as close as possible to the point of release, and prevent it from entering the air of the workplace.

Who should carry out LEV Testing:

Anywhere with extraction units and/or that produces fumes, a few examples of workplaces and processes include:

  • Wood and carpentry manufacturers
  • MOT Stations
  • Restaurants with exhaust ventilation units
  • Industrial processes that produce paint fumes and solder fumes
  • Shot blasting and sand blasting processes
  • Air conditioning units
  • Furniture makers  

What we can offer:

Envirochem routinely undertake LEV checks for many clients on equipment including:

  • Fume cabinets
  • Spray booths
  • Dust extract systems
  • Air conditioning units
  • Exhaust ventilation units
  • Extractor fan units

These should be tested 14 monthly or after any modifications, as specified within the Health and Safety Executive’s HSE Guidance Notes HS(G)54 and HS(G)37.

We produce thorough reports detailing duct velocities static pressures and flow rates and make comments on any observed changes in the system reading or their possible causes.

Asbestos Testing Kits

 

Everyone knows that the presence of asbestos is definitely something you don’t want lurking around your home or workplace. With our asbestos self-test kits it’s never been easier to take a sample of an area you think may have asbestos and get it tested by us so you can get on with your day-to-day life.

Our self-sampling kit will enable you to take a sample, safely, from a material you suspect contains asbestos. The substance can be found in a number of materials, and it is commonplace in buildings built prior to 2000. It can be found in anything from corrugated cement and internal cladding panels to window sills, walls and boards. It is always safest to check whether asbestos is present before making any changes to a building.

If you’re considering renovating your home or workspace, make sure you order one of our self-test kits today to ensure the process is as safe as possible. Alternatively, our expert team is always on hand to attend a site and take samples for you. For more information, get in touch with one of our experts today.

Whether it’s at work or in your home, we understand that it’s not always easy to know where to start if you’re worried about asbestos. Our self-test kits are easy to use, come with all the necessary protective equipment and instructions and can be returned back to us for analysis.
